Don't get into a twit about the NSA spying thing.

When is enough finaly enough for Congress? It seems like every week there's another even more outrageous revelation about the illegal activities of this administration and Congress just shrugs its collective shulders and says, 'whaddya' gonna do about it?'

Yesterday USA Today reported that the NSA has been collecting billions of call logs of Americans since 2001.

USA Today:

"'It's the largest database ever assembled in the world,' said one person, who, like the others who agreed to talk about the NSA's activities, declined to be identified by name or affiliation. The agency's goal is 'to create a database of every call ever made' within the nation's borders, this person added."

No worries there, I'm sure the intentions of ther government are honoable, no reason to ask them any hard questions about what they're actually doing with this information. Like Trent Lott says, "Do we want security... or do we want to get in a twit about our civil libertarian rights?"

Arlen Specter, the only Senator who actually doers anything apparently, says he's going to finally get around to calling the heads of AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth into answer questions about what the government has had them doing. It's long overdue. No point in calling Alberto "waterboard" Gonzales in, he'll just lie his ass off anyway.
